There’s no place like Homewood. Especially Friday and Saturday, Aug. 16-17, when New Monsoon headlines a two-day party.
Free to the public, Homewood Days celebrates summertime at West Shore.
A opening “Kickoff Party” starts at 3 p.m at The Grill, featuring games, dinner and live music by Wild Mountain Honey. The live music by the Lake Tahoe band is from 5- 8 p.m.
A full day of activities Saturday includes a pair of live music performances. Lonesome Locomotive plays at 4 p.m. and New Monsoon is at 6.
New Monsoon is in the process of recording its first studio album since”New Monsoon IV in 2007. It recently put down the rhythm tracks at TRI studios. Guitarists Jeff Miller and Bo Carper and keyboardist Phil Ferlino will add their tracks to the mix at a future date, presumably back at Bob Weir’s busy Marin County studio.
“We’re looking at 10 songs now for the record,” guitarist Jeff Miller said. “We have some songs we’ve played and a couple of new ones we have not played live so it’s going to be a healthy mix of the two.”
